AllMusic Review by

Irma Thomas deserves hits and wider exposure more than almost any other R&B vocalist you could name. While the material on this album is uneven, she retains her credibility regardless. It takes real guts to cover "Dancing in the Street" and "Baby I Love You," and even more talent not to be subsumed by their history. She's vibrant on "Old Records," hard-hitting on "You Don't Know Nothin' About Love," and poignant on "Sorry Wrong Number," "Sit Down and Cry," and "I'll Take Care of You."
